Depart for Lashio after breakfast. First town we are going to pass through PyinOoLwin. The road is up hill. PyinOoLwin (Maymyo) has 43 miles 69 kilometers away from Mandalay and over fifteen hundreds feet above sea level. It is famous as a hill resort. The weather is pleasant and cold weather all the year round because of higher elevation, thick forest and the blooming of the various kinds of seasonal flowers, so, it is called a town of flowers.
After passing through PyinOoLwin Township, we are entering Northern Shan State. Road is up and down along hill ranges surrounded by lush and green forest and vegetations. Within an hour drive, you are going to see Got-hteik viaduct. The Gokteik Bridge, a structure of steel trestle construction for railway line to Lashio began in 1901 by an American company - the Pennsylvania and Maryland Bridge Construction and completed in 1913. It is 2260 feet long and was built 320 feet high above a deep ragged stone rock valley. The Rock itself is 550 feet high above the small river that flows under the rock. Although the viaduct is destroyed in the second-World war, Myanma railway repaired the bridge. Due to its technical and natural condition it was considered as a masterpiece of the world standard. Mr Paul Theroux said his book " The Great Railway Bizarre" called the viaduct " a monster of silver geometry in all the ragged rock and jungle---its presence was bizarre". It is the most important viaduct in Mandalay Lashio rail-road section and the second highest viaduct in the world.
